At the time of review, this was the only 'Man Or Astroman?' show within the Internet Archive really worth having. And boy is it worth having! Listening to the show on surround sound, it does some pretty freaky things. The sound quality is like an official release. The music is hard rockin' sci-fi themed surf. Even though it's a short set, the music gets a bit monotonous after awhile. The exception to this is the last track which proves that the band can do more than thrash with power chords.

Man or Astro-man?
A great sounding recording, thanks for this it was very good.
diana and i don't agree on anything outside the music (or so it seems), but when it comes to the music (ain't that what we are here for?), my hat goes off to her. the first "man or astroman?" offering here left way too much to be desired, so to get this, is a way more than welcome follow-up. thanks to all involved for this wonderful show. great show, great sound, and glad to include it in my rotation.

John Peel Is Their God
Highly recommended! Not only is this a crisp recording (probably atypical of most Astroman soundwave captures), but the joy and energy really seems to come through in this special performance to rock the face of John Peel. There is only a brief bit of Astro-patter; though short it's mostly music. BTW first track appears to fade in at beginning of tune (Peel/digiPeel intro is not present in this recording).

This is a great recording and a great show! A little short, perhaps, but excellent sound, excellent performance! Some really crazed stuff here, well worth the download.
